The Sock Thief
- Gusset decreases - the pattern tells you to stop decreasing when you have 31 foot stitches and 30 instep stitches. Instead, it should be 30 foot stitches and 31 instep stitches. The lace pattern is worked over 31 stitches.
- Clarification: Where it says “continue working in pattern” this means to continue working the lace pattern over the top of the foot and knit plain stockinette on the bottom of the foot.
While I was working on this sock I was staying with my parents waiting for my new apartment to be ready. They have a little tiny yorkie who has a terrible habit of stealing socks. She has a special fondness for worn socks, so it didn’t surprise me when she dug these socks out of my knitting bag – more than once! – after they’d be tried on a few times. I think The Sock Thief definitely appreciated the ultra soft merino and forgiving nylon in the Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock. The generously stretchy lace and rib pattern hugs your foot and keeps your toes cozy.
The pattern is written for fingering weight and DK weight yarns.
